Emerald Group Publishing Limited, the world’s leading publisher of management research, is proud to announce that it has become Serials Solutions KnowledgeWorks Certified. With this certification, Emerald becomes a key content partner in providing quality metadata to the Serials Solutions KnowledgeWorks knowledgebase. As a KnowledgeWorks Certified partner, Emerald will work with Serials Solutions to ensure that content is current and accurate, making it easier for librarians to track and for library patrons to find.
“Emerald is delighted to have become KnowledgeWorks Certified,” says Richard Hollingsworth, Chief Development Officer at Emerald. “Emerald’s goal is to help the world be better managed through the publication of rigorous and relevant research. What better way to do that than by making sure our data is accurately represented and easily accessible.”
To populate KnowledgeWorks, Serials Solutions collects bibliographic metadata from publishers such as Emerald, then cross checks with the Library of Congress and other authority-based data sources in order to normalize the data. Emerald joins fourteen other content providers in the KnowledgeWorks Certification program, which will work to make sure content data is current and accurate.
"With providers like Emerald taking part in the KnowledgeWorks Certification program, librarians will be able to trust that they are getting the best possible access to e-resources," said Sherrard Ewing, Provider Relations Specialist at Serials Solutions.
KnowledgeWorks Certified is a new publisher certification program from Serials Solutions, a business unit of ProQuest. The KnowledgeWorks Certification program helps Serials Solutions to maintain the highest quality bibliographic metadata for e-resources.
